This event will showcase public safety displays, provide free cotton candy, snow cones, popcorn, toys, games, a puppet show and Christmas stockings for disadvantaged children. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to receive a toy.

Special Celebrity Guests: Tamera & Tia Mowry from the TV show "Sister, Sister" and Tahj Mowry from the TV show "Smart Guy".

Santa Claus will be arriving to the Academy in a 1958 Chevrolet police car and will be handing out toys with the assistance of his helpers.
